Men’s soccer win 3-1

Knights win 3 to 1 against the Arabs of El Centro

The Knights of San Diego City College were quick to score against the Arabs of Imperial Valley only five minutes into the first half of a fast-paced game that was full of quick passes and dashes toward the goals on both sides of the field, with Tony Nguyen No. 7, scoring the first goal from the deep corner.

The Knights held possession the majority of the time, giving them an early advantage, making for an game full of exciting moments. There were many calls for high kicking, some of which were close enough to the face in one instance as to draw the yellow card on the Knights in the first half.

The Arabs scored in the first five minutes into the second half to tie up the game.  This was perhaps the most intense moment of the game as both teams were highly motivated and making extreme attempts to score.

The tie did not last long when Eddie Mendez No. 11, scored with a powershot from outside the goal box, followed by another goal shortly after by Devin Garcia No. 14, who received the ball off a corner kick and a hat trick, back heel assist by a Knights midfielder.

The Knights held their dominance over the Arabs for the remainder of the game,  not allowing the other team any opportunities to close the gap.  With a final score of 3-1, the Knights won a well earned victory and displayed an impressive performance of athleticism.  Both teams played very hard in what was an intense and entertaining game of soccer.
